PM Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump.

In a grand show of friendship and common vision, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump shared the stage at the 'Howdy, Modi' event in Houston on Sunday, 22 September, replete with symbolism and substance, as the two leaders pledged to fight terrorism while heaping praise on each other's achievements.

With the slogan 'Abki Baar, Trump Sarkar', Modi gave tacit support to Trump's 2020 re-election bid at the event. In a tweet later in the day, Modi said that the event was a “watershed moment” for India-US ties.

  • PM Modi pitched for ‘strength in diversity’, as he opened his remarks with ‘India is doing great’ in multiple Indian languages
  • President Trump drew cheers and standing ovations when he said both nations are committed to ending ‘radical Islamic terrorism’
  • Anti-Modi protests took place outside the NRG Stadium
